I have no proof for most of this tree.

I have one area of my tree which I have toiled
over many nights. That's the CLACK/BOLLING connection. I have seen several
sites on the 'Net which try to show Jane Bolling as a child of Jane
Rolfe, the granddaughter of
John Rolfe and Pocahontas.
This is false information. Historians agree that Jane Rolfe was an only
child, born early in the marriage, and that her mother died shortly after
she was born.
It is possible that Jane Bolling is
closely related to John Bolling, but she is not his sister.
I prefer using Jane Macklin in her place.

Although I wish my tree to be accuarate, mistakes
DO happen, and assumptions CAN be incorrect. If you wish to add part of
my collection to your own tree, do so with the knowlege that I have NOT
proven it. It is important to have documents in hand for a project of this
type. While I am amassing these documents at a rapid rate, there are holes
yet to be filled. Texas belonged to Mexico until 1836. There was no
Census here before 1850. My "great great grandparent" information has been
taken from interviews with several very elderly people. It is possible
that the dates are inaccuarate. Where I could not make these dates work,
I either left them blank or used the designations "ABT" or "CIRCA". My
grandmother insists that her Holder and Shepheard families were here "before
[the battle of] the Alamo".
Armstrong family members:
Specificly, my dad and two uncles.
They are 70, 72, and 81 years of age
are absolutely wonderful to talk to, but they are men - and dates are just
not that important to them.
My Mamaw Senn:
years old and has a fantastic memory. If any of you have neglected
speaking to elderly relatives, you are doing yourself an injustice.
I have one more relative
to interview. She is my husband's grandaunt and is
years old. I am looking forward to speaking with her soon.

The tree has no signature
and I do not know who prepared it. I will gladly give credit for it if
the person contacts me.

I have searched other family trees on the
